Thanksgiving Turkey Place Cards

Hi 3 Birds friends, its Mary Ann here today with something fun to add to your Thanksgiving table! How about turkey place cards?

To start, I made the “feathers” by cutting 3 scalloped circles using my Silhouette die cutting machine. (scalloped circle punches would also work for this!) Next, I cut the circles in half, and glued them on to my place card base made from a 4×5 piece of cardstock that had been folded in half.

For the turkey’s wattle, I cut the individual piece from a strip of red quilling paper found in the Holiday Season Card Making Kit. Next came the googly eyes that I had in my stash of craft supplies.

To complete the place cards, I printed the names on my computer, then cut into small strips and added to the center of each card.
